Chinese checkers is a game for 2 to 6 players.


Each player picks a set of 10 like colored marbles and places them on the spaces filling one of the star points. When two play, players take opposite points. For three, every other point, etc.


The goal is to be the first player to advance all of his/her marbles to the point opposite the starting point. No marbles are ever removed from the board.


Each player may move only one marble per turn. A move may be one hole in any direction, or, by jumping another marble, in a straight line. Jumping moves may continue in a series of several jumps, either in a straight line or a zig-zag pattern so long as each jump is along a straight line and over only one marble at a time.
